The Complete History of America (Abridges) is a Mid-summer nights foray into the Republic’s 500,000-year historical timeline told through slapstick humor, bad songs, hijinks and silliness.
Audience members can expect visits by undignified dignitaries like Amerigo Vespucci, George Washington, Ben Franklin, Dodge Rambler: Boy Buckaroo, Jedgar (sic) Hoover, Hawkeye Pierce, Sam Spade and Ron and Nancy Reagan and of course, one Mr. Donald J. Trump. The troupe turns history into the story every high-school kid wishes they were learning.
Some humor may be inappropriate for children (13 and younger).
Venue: Sunflower Theatre
Located in the historic Basin Industrial Bank building adjacent to the KSJD radio studios in downtown Cortez, Colorado.
